Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown reportedly has reached a settlement with Ophir Sternberg, who told the authorities Brown had thrown furniture out the window of his apartment complex that nearly struck his 22-month-old son, per TMZ Sports.

According to that report, "In his suit, Sternberg claims Brown tossed everything from vases to an ottoman and other pieces of furniture ... and they landed mere FEET from the toddler, who was allegedly traumatized by the whole thing."

Brown denied he was the one who threw the furniture, saying someone else in his apartment was responsible, though "cops actually responded to the apartment that day and say the NFL star was 'very agitated' and yelling when they got there. Cops also said the people who were with Brown that day were trying to calm him down."

The terms of the settlement the two sides reportedly reached have remained confidential. 

Brown, 30, was traded to the Oakland Raiders this offseason. He's a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time first team All-Pro selection.
